Overview

Venture out to our most northerly Scottish campsite in the Western Highlands.

Our Inverewe Gardens Club campsite shares its name with the world-famous tropical Inverewe Gardens created by Osgood Mackenzie in 1862. This lush oasis perches on a peninsula at the edge of Loch Ewe surrounded by more than 2,000 acres of conservation estate.

Our campsite, just a short walk away, is another oasis of peace and calm. This pretty tree-lined site enjoys glorious views that extend over Loch Ewe – the eagle-eyed may spot otters and seals enjoying the waters. Catch the weather right and the sunsets from here are sublime.

The site has toilet and shower facilities, a laundry and backpacker facilities. For provisions the village of Poolewe, a short walk away has a good shop, as well as a tearoom and hotel.

There are plenty of walks to be enjoyed from site or cycle to Inveradale around the Loch. Further north Rubha nan Sasan, beyond Cove is home to a range of WWII command posts and gun emplacements which helped guard the entrance to Loch Ewe during the war.

Nearby Gairloch has a heritage Museum and Marine Life Centre offering daily cruises to survey dolphins, whales and seals.

Access and SatNav Advice

Recommended approach to the site is from Gairloch side due to steep hill from Ullapool direction.

Worth Noting

Backpackers have an undercover eating and cooking area. A mobile butcher/grocery van visits twice a week. Most shops and fuel stations close on a Sunday. No bank in Poolewe but post office has a cashpoint

Eat Local

A market with fresh produce takes place at the village hall on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

This review is for Inverewe Gardens Poolewe

Took a long scenic drive from Inverness to this site, so we were both a little shattered when we arrived. Unfortunately the moment we unpacked our tents the heavens opened. Not the sites fault but once tents were up and we went and had a meal all we wanted to do was sleep and move on in the morning. We were driving a Land Rover Discovery, and wern't allowed to park it on the grass next to our tents, instead had to leave it out of sight in front of the reception office. Maybe some hard standing near 'tent' area would be appropriate as we dont all drive 'compact cars'.

The site reception stocks some essentials and a shop in the village is well stocked including daily papers. The Inverewe Gardens are just a 10 to 12 minute walk away.

This review is for Inverewe Gardens Poolewe

The site had beautiful views across the bay. The sun sets were lovlely.The toilet and shower areas were very clean and well maintained.The team worked well together. The pitches were hard standing but a bit narrow for a twin axial caravan and a car together. There are many walks around the site,both short and long. Inverewe garden run by the national trust is worth a visit.We had a day visit to Ullapool and Gairloch.The small museum in Gairloch was enjoyable. We would like to say a special thank you to Mark from the camp site for his helpful advice he gave to my husband when we had a problem with our motor mover.
